Abstract

The AUS is the only means of increasing outlet resistance in the neurogenic population yet still allow spontaneous emptying. It can also be used successfully in those requiring CIC to empty, It provides excellent continence rates, and the reliability of the device is much improved. It is the author's first choice in any child with a neuropathic bladder who can empty by the Valsalva maneuver. It is one of the most reliable means of achieving dryness in the boys in this group regardless of their means of emptying. As with all procedures that increase outlet resistance, lifelong follow-up is mandatory.
